Ask for an update


Shardul, Snehal, and Aditya are law students at the Maharashtra National Law University, Mumbai in India. They have been selected to represent their University in the highly competitive 2020 Edition of the Concours Pictet (Jean-Pictet International Humanitarian Law Competition). The team has been selected for the 33rd Edition of the Competition which will take place from 22nd – 29th February 2020.

Selection Certificate & University Recommendation Letter:

With applicants from over 92 countries participating in the 2018 editions, the Jean-Pictet International Humanitarian Law Competition was founded in 1989 with the aim of “taking the law out of the books" through simulations and role-plays, thus allowing the jury of the competition to evaluate each team's theoretical knowledge, practical understanding, and application of the principles of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) or the law of Armed Conflict. The teams compete in the context of simulations and role-plays built around a fictitious armed conflict, playing the role of actors of armed conflicts (military, humanitarian, political officers, lawyers, health workers) in an international context of diplomacy, negotiation and conflict mediation. This Competition also provides a wonderful platform to understand a plethora of national legal regimes via perspective sharing and interaction sessions among the participants, and how these intersect and co-apply with IHL regime in times of armed conflict.

Funding Details:
Registration Fee: 1,00,000 rupees approx. (1250 Euros)
Travel Expenditure: 1,00,000 rupees approx. (economy fare – round trip – 3 members)  

The registration fee for the competition covers accommodation and food costs during the week-long competition. Apart from the registration fees, the team must also pay for their travel expenses. The team needs financial help to cover the registration fee and their travel expenses.

Why Fund Us?
Most Indian academic institutions still have not yet fully grasped the importance of teaching IHL as an integral part of the legal curriculum. Awareness for the same while is on the rise, has a long way to go. We are a fledgling university and are located in the financial hub of Mumbai. Due to high operational costs and Indian universities not prioritizing and recognizing competitions concerning human rights and humanitarian law as they should, most of the funding is concentrated towards people working on competitions in the financial and corporate sectors. In light of this, our University is genuinely unable to fund us in the endeavor. We are one of the few students in the University who are extremely interested in the field of IHL and have worked in conflict zones across India, while addressing and understanding questions of simultaneous legal regimes, nature of Non-International Armed Conflicts and have worked on moot court competitions such as the ICRC Henry Dunant and the International Criminal Court wherein we have honed our skills on the topic.
We sincerely hope that you help the team take part in this Competition through your donations. Every amount will help. Thank you so much!
